Sept. 12, 1935
Marion Co., Record
John Spachek and Walter Houdyshell of the Youngtown neighborhood, had an unusual and thrilling experience Saturday morning. They had been baling hay on a farm near Youngtown and were hauling 77 bales on a new Ford truck when suddenly they noticed the load of hay was on fire. Unable to unload the truck by hand and unable to reach water, John drove from one ditch to the other, spilling burning bales for a quarter of a mile up the road. After the bales were all off, the truck was still on fire. They drove a quarter of a mile to a farm house and extinguished the fire by water from a well. The body of the truck was destroyed, part of the cab was burned off, and the heat cracked the glass.
